weird shit, first time that the low E broke.
i was just playing, and then it did a weird sound, and then i saw the low e sliced or something like that, near my pickups, now i have a guitar without the 6th string :O
by the way i'm using 10-46 set... it's like 3 months old, elixir.

someone ?

yeah dude it's ****ing crazy but well.. so should i change the whole set or put a new E string .. ?

Ye shit happens! my friend broke the low e on his bass, then he did it again after restringing it haha

I usually spend about a month putting off changing the broken string, and I pretend it's a "challenge" and I use different tunings. So theres some fun to be had there...

But I would change the whole set if you are going to change one string, unless you have a single spare. It's just easier, and where one is broken another is surely close.

i higly recommend to change all the strings, and then have the old strings as a backup, in case you broke another and you cant buy a new set

me too i use alot of different tunings... so i'll change the whole set.. thanks alot everyone

Similar thing happened to me just yesterday.

Brand new set of EB 11-48 and snapped the low E

I tried to string it using the locking method and i underestimated the amount of string i needed around the peg. String was kinked, tried again, string broke and unzipped itself.
Now i have 5 brand new, perfectly good strings and i can't use them.

My nearest guitar store doesn't have a 48 string on its own. I had to buy 2 brand new sets (the other as a backup).

Hard luck i guess.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

Just get a new set. 3 months is a long time, even with Elixirs. If your E string broke, the others probably aren't in too good shape.
